SUMMARY
Howeys Yard is a most spectacular property designed by the award winning architect, Stephen Mattick. You will fall in love with the high vaulted ceilings throughout bringing in loads of natural light.


DESCRIPTION
Offering approx. 4200sq.ft of accommodation, this property boasts superior specification and standard of finishes throughout, be it in the imposing '17th century' barn conversion, or the recently built additions. This is a truly rare opportunity to purchase an absolute gem of a property in a beautiful village!

The property is predominantly single-storey with the added advantage of a vast basement offering a variety of potential uses and includes a kitchenette, utility room, and extra storage. There are three further reception rooms, large kitchen/diner, and beautiful living room with exposed wooden beams. To the bedroom wing you will find five double bedrooms, three with mezzanines for storage/extra bed space, two large en suites, and a wonderful dressing room for the master bedroom.

As you enter you will find automated entrance gates opening up to ample off-street parking, large double 'cart lodge' style garage, and an automatic vehicle turntable. The stunning landscaped garden offers a private and enclosed space to soak up the sunshine and enjoy alfresco dining on the large picnic bench made from wood salvaged from the 17th century barn. To the rear is a low maintenance walled courtyard with secured private access to the village recreation ground.

The very picturesque village of Ickleton has a village shop, inn / restaurant, playing fields, village hall, magnificent parish church and conveniently situated within easy reach of the fine old market town of Saffron Walden to the south and the university city of Cambridge to the north.
